The last seven barrels of 2005 Volnay Santenots du Milieu had only finished malo the week before I visited (mid February), at which point the wine was immediately assembled. Leading with sweet cherry, lily and nutmeg aromas this makes a very serious case for itself on the palate, with bright black fruits allied to soy, fresh red meat, deep, low-toned chocolate and stony minerality. Flattering in its creaminess of texture, with ample tannins folded into its generous fruit, it finishes richly with sweet cherry having the final say. As Lafon puts it, the Champans is earthier and the Santenots sleeker and more elegant.
